It Was the Best of Times...

So, Katie's Sweet Sixteen was last weekend.  Here is the highlight reel:

Katie & Allison - we all had "katie's sweet sixteen" shirts with monograms

White birthday shirts for the grown-ups - Forest is a good sport, but he drew the line at lilac sleeveless

The crew in the car (Lauren, Grace & Allison from L to R in the backseat). On our way to play golf!

A turtle on the greens!

A break to let some others "play through"

They made it through FIVE HOLES, but then the car arrived to take them to the hotel

We arrived at the Four Seasons at the Lumiere Place Casino

Forest and I decorated the suite...

Custom root beers & cream sodas

...while the girls were chillin' at the pool

The girls went back to the room to get ready for dinner.  This took THREE AND A HALF HOURS, no lie. 

While we were waiting, Forest and I enjoyed some drinks & appetizers on the patio at Cielo

Finally, the girls were ready!

We had dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory

The whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday!

At 12:47 am on June 6th we had cake to mark Katie's EXACT birthday

Sunday morning they got in one final bask in the sun

Overall it was a great success :) Katie has decided she wants all future parties to be at the Four Seasons.  We shall see...

On Sunday we had a family birthday dinner:

Katie & Grammy

Katie & Mommy

Forest & Me

Happy Sweet Sixteen Katie!!!

Then Monday she got her Drivers License!

Times are changing - that's for sure!

Other updates:

  • In additional baby making news, the FET is in full swing. A myriad of IM injections are entering my gluteus maxima each night.  We are scheduled to transfer 1 to 3 blasts on Tuesday at 1 pm CST! Wish us luck!!!
  • In unrelated, but adorable news, I connected with an old friend from high school on Facebook and she is having a giveaway on her adorable blog.  Check out these AWESOME little hats (that turn into purses!) and register to win one on Emily's blog! Good luck!

Hellooooo Super Mom!! What a fantastic birthday!! Happy 16th to Katie!

Tuesday, noon here in the mountains. I'm lighting a candle and thinking of your ute. May the implantation be with you. <3

She is SO pretty! Can you believe you have a 16 yr old?

I am NOT surprised it took them 3.5 hrs to get ready. Since I have 3 sisters! Should Bobby and I build another bathroom onto our house now in anticipation for 16 yr old twin girls?

I am sending you a TON of FET transfer success! I want you to have twins! MUAH!

What fun for Katie and what a great mom you are! Three and a half hours? Oh my!

Can't wait to hear more updates on your FET, Amy! Everything is crossed.
